anonymous coffin




This anonymous coffin of the 21st Dynasty was found in the royal cachette at Deir el-Bahari. The lid and the tank probably belong to two different coffins. The external decoration of the tank represents a funerary procession and the completion of rites before different deities. The interior sides are decorated with three standing genii. The lid, which seems to have belonged to the coffin of a woman, is divided into many scenes in which the god Osiris plays the principle role.
